This tall formation sits all alone in the desert to the northwest of the main Hall of Horrors Area and can be a nice place to escape to if there are crowds there. Climbs here range from 5.6 to 5.12a with the majority in the 5.10 and under range with a nice assortment of both cracks and faces.
Some of the better routes here include Arturo's Special
